Running around like crazy!

I'm excited.


I ran 6.5 miles in 55 minutes!
I've been thinking about entering a 10k for awhile but been tentative because I wasn't sure if I could run the distance.
But I finally ran my goal, so I entered it this past weekend and am really excited!

My reward after 
and of course 

Cookies...these are my newest creation.
they are Cocoa Peanut Chip Oatmeal Greek Yogurt Cookies.

these cookies have:
no butter
no oil
no sugar(sort of)
no additives 
I like to think of them as being semi-healthy.
I don't even know if they qualify as a "cookie"
besides the fact that they include chocolate...but really what do I eat that doesn't involve chocolate.
but I will call them that because it makes my heart happy to know I am eating a cookie.

(not a great pic.)
they are really really yummy
like I eat them 6 times a day yummy...

but I wish I would of had a dozen of these after my run! 
maybe my treat for accomplishing the 10k
good thought?
Still waiting to apply for my job there.
My dreams will come true.

While I'm waiting for my cookie dreams to come true.
 I made some little girls Princess dreams come true.
I am now a princess for children's birthday parties! This weekend was my first party. I was Rapunzel at Sierra's 6th birthday. I have never had so much fun at a party. We danced, sang, made bookmarks, played games, read stories, ate cake, and open gifts. Could you ask for a better day?

Picture of Me and the birthday girl!

Look at that HAIR!

Want to know more about the parties??

I need to start and finish writing my history paper


Keep happy thoughts.

Now, who wants to fold my laundry??

Is this gross?

I'm kind of obsessed with fruit and vegetable smoothies...
I know it looks gross...but don't knock it before you try!

Green Smoothie
1/4 cup OJ
1/4 cup Carrot Juice
Handful of Spinach(about 1 to 1 1/2 cups, I think)
1/2 Strawberries, Mangos, Pineapple
1/4 cup Blueberries
1/2 Banana...if wanted.

I know this is gross.
My obsession with Reddi Whip.
Some people are addicted to pizza...
Some people are addicted to cocaine...
 I'm addicted to Reddi Whip.
I will put it on anything...and EVERYTHING.

There is nothing that Reddi Whip doesn't taste good with.
ok, kidding. 
but seriously the stuff is like crack.

I'm "Reddi" for ANYTHING:

Except my History paper that is due Friday.

Must get more reinforcements(Reddi Whip) for help.

:) xoxo

The Sooner who didn't own Red...

This past weekend was the first game day of the season, and me being the biggest football fan ever, owns nothing red.
I thought that I had red.
Seriously I did.
Anyway, I went to go take my car to a parking lot down the street, because we were parking cars at my house($$) and I was not going to the game. So after our driveway was full I didn't want to be locked into my house.

I might of parked in a parking lot with a Hancock Fabrics in it.
I might of walked in and purchased some cheesy OU fabrics.
I might of sewed the tacky fabrics together to make a sash.
I might have something red and OU to wear to games.

(sorry about my hair, please don't judge to was so hot and I was already sweating like a pig. Besides, my hair is getting so long. And developing a mind of its own, I think I'm developing a lion's mane. AHHH!)

Look at our cute makeshift parking sign.
(we took scrapbook paper and taped it together to the back of cardboard box!)

We earned some money!
And on top of that OU won! 

But the best part is I finally got to see The Help.
It was great! 
I really thought the movie was a good adaptation of the book, and even more surprising I liked Emma Stone! I'm usually not the biggest fan of her's but the past two movies she has been in(Crazy Stupid Love, and the Help) I have really enjoyed her.

Now I wish I could say I'm reading something just as inspirational and interesting as The Help....but right now I'm reading

not the most interesting say it nicely.

Oh well, off to enjoy the PERFECT weather we are having right now and eat dinner on my front porch!

Then to the piano...quiz tomorrow!
say prayers.
lots of them.

Mozart Jr.

That would be my grade for my first piano quiz.

Look at that F.
I might have cried.

excessive amounts.

I failed.

the worst part is I practiced.


I can't help that our piece was really difficult.
I mean look at that music.
Any person who plays the piano would have trouble playing that...let alone someone who is not good(meaning me).

Fine, you caught me.
 That was not the song I had to play...mine looked more like this

Laugh all you want.
but you try playing that...and saying the note names aloud.

It was my first time performing piano for anyone, I can't help that I choked.

I swear I'm going to get better, if it kills me.

Besides failing piano.
and blogging.(sorry)
 I've been bored with a lot of things in my life.
More like everything.
For example, my workouts :/. So I've been trying new things. Like YOGA!

I'm really loving it! I get to bike there(which I love) and it is a great way to focus on yourself mentally and physically.  Some of the "yogi" concepts confuse me, but the stretching and core work are really great! I can feel my arms getting stronger also. The class I go to is Hot Vinyasa Flow, but today after class my teacher told me I should try to take a harder class. So this week I'm going to try a Level Two class. Hopefully I won't kill myself.

I've also been really bored by EVERYTHING I've been eating, so I decided to try some of the foods I read about.
I will allow myself one purchase a week for something fun and interesting( budget.problems.)
This week's purchase:
 Wondering what Millet is and what its benefits are...go here.

I have to say it was quite tasty. I made egg white cinnamon french toast with peanut butter on top.
The bread has almost the texture of a cake but a little more grainy. This texture made it perfect for my french toast!
I was inspired by KATH.
My toast didn't quite look as pretty as this...but you get the picture!
(KATH takes the most beautiful photos on her blog, you should take a look!)

So this week since it is the start of a new month...I'm starting fresh.
I'm going to break outside of my box.
Trying new things.
Meeting new people
Playing new piano songs.
Inventing New foods.

Can I do it?


Check out this.
Who know Lululemon was out of style.

Looks like I need to get some new gear for they gym.


stay happy.
